Did you ever sing that little prayer as a child?

"Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my Soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my Soul to take..."
And mine:

The Demon Prayer

I stare into the face
Of pain
The deepened, bloody,
Seeping vein

Every night I dream
And say
“Come for me,
Take me away”

But with shadowed hands
And smothered sighs
They wait for
The dark to rise

And with the hands
Of sure demise
Come all the whispers
All the lies

A gentle touch
Will take me there
Toward chain and darkness
Whip and snare

And sometimes when
I lie awake
I pray to them
My soul to take
